Ileana dubs in Telugu for the first time
Actor Ileana D’Cruz may be enjoying her time in Bollywood by starring in hit films. However, much before she attained fame in the Hindi film industry, Ileana was a popular face in Telugu cinema. She made her debut with Devadasu in the year 2006. Since then she has starred in a number of Telugu films. Owing to the fact that her mother tongue isn’t Telugu, Ileana never attempted to speak for herself in her films. Now, after a period of 12 years, director Sreenu Vaitla has urged Ileana to dub for herself for the film Amar Akbar Anthony.
Speaking to a media portal, the director said ”Ileana was the only name which came to my mind when I wrote the character. After she began working on the film, I insisted that she dub for herself. But she was hesitant and stated that her Telugu would not suit the film. But I urged her to do it. She completed her portion in five days”
This will be Ileana’s fourth collaboration with the film’s lead, Ravi Teja. Amar Akbar Anthony is produced by Mythri Movie Makers. The film has music by S S Thaman. It is set for release on November 16.
